Nokia E62 / E61
E61 BB / Tmobile
Nokia e61 with Blackberry connect software.
I can get on the internet, but email doesn't work.
When I go to compose an email from the Blackberry application there is no provision to "Send" the email..
Its like it has never even heard of email.
Had to send Service books from T-mobile, then "register" the thing on the network from the handheld, then tell T-mobile which device I was using from their website.
Then the next morning it stopped working again.
Keys to BB / T-mobile
1) Online at t-mobile.com you have to tell it you are changing devices.
2) before you do that get the BB software installed and get the internet working.
3) on the handheld device you have to find a setting for "register device" or something like that.
4) You may have to put the IMEI from the box into the t-mobile.com website.
5) Repeat all of the steps above many times.
1) Where is the USB? I have one charger, and one funky connector to the la...
I went back to a new Blackberry. Just couldn't deal with the lack of trackwheel and lack of USB cable for charging and data.
BUT... the T-Mobile plan worked flawlessly. Superfast internet and I installed the Blackberry Connect software from Nokia and it worked perfectly too. Emails were superfast.
But it also doesn't have a native .pdf viewer, can probably get one free online.
Great phone, just didn't work for me.
I want to purchase but not if it will be a sync nightmare.
The reason i want a PDA is for syncing calendar and contacts.
I am selling the E61 because I am not happy with it's interoperability with my Mac
In particular, when I synced it with my Mac a while ago, it truncated my notes entries in Address Book, and I lost a lot of information I really wanted to keep
If you did buy the phone I'd be very interested in how you got on with it

You should be able to use the BB data plan with the Nokia E61 with no problem from my understanding. Yet, you're correct the total internet add on plan is for the MDA, Dash, etc and not for BB devices or Devices that support BB connect.
Im not sure if the other user still has his sidekick data plan that he/she is trying to use with the E61 or if he/she is trying to use the unlimited tzones plan with the E61--neither of which are supposed to work with BB data devices, MDA, etc according to T-Mobile data support.
